Bullnose coping has a flat, back-sloped surface but with a curved front face. Bullnose coping is considered to be a safer alternative to other pavers because of its soft edge. As a result it is preferred for use in swimming pools as it makes it easy for people to climb in and out without risk of rubbing against a sharp edge. Because of the unique shape of this coping it’s considered relatively complex to cut, requiring professionals to do the job.

Pool coping is a decorative and finishing touch that separates your pool from the deck. It also gives you something to grab onto when you’re ready to get out. Hence it serves the purposes of both style and safety and is always recommended. Without coping your swimming pool will be relatively unsafe. Coping also helps protect the upper surface of the pool wall known as the bond beam (which will likely have exposed steel).
